The Tigers are an overvalued favorite with a rookie making just his third career start, but the Orioles can’t be trusted anywhere.
Baltimore Orioles at Detroit Tigers
Baltimore avoided a three-game sweep on Sunday by defeating the Boston Red Sox, 6-1, at Fenway Park. The Orioles have lost 16 straight road series dating back to last September.

Baltimore Orioles at San Diego Padres
Baltimore held a 2-1 lead on Friday night heading into the bottom of the ninth, only to see the Padres rally for a 3-2 victory behind 1B Adrian Gonzalez’s bases loaded single. The club has converted just 47.8 percent of its save opportunities, the lowest percentage in the major leagues. The Orioles have now lost 18 of their last 21 games, being outscored 127-50 over that span. Friday’s loss also dropped the club to 2-8 in interleague play this year. In facing a left-handed starter tonight, Baltimore’s offense will be paced by OF Nick Markakis, who leads all left-handed batters in baseball with a .375 batting average against them. The club has been outscored 65-28 in their last 12 road games, as they are 8-37 in their last 45 games away from Camden Yards.

The Mets are on the verge of doing something for possibly the first time in franchise history.
New York Mets at Baltimore Orioles
New York’s pitching staff dominated Baltimore hitters for a second consecutive night, picking up a 3-1 victory on Saturday night and capturing its first road series win of the season. The Mets lead the majors with a 2.31 ERA in June, leading the team to an 8-2 record during the month (+540). The offense is hoping to get a contribution from OF Jason Bay in the series finale, as he’s suffering from a 0-for-16 slump. It’s hard to imagine that he breaks out this afternoon due to his .152 average (5-for-33) in his last nine games at Camden Yards. The Mets are 4-1 in interleague play this year (+380) and 109-107 overall against the American League since 1997.
